In 2010, council purchased a 3.4 hectare piece of land on the corner of Church and King Streets, Buderim, to develop into a district level park.

Project scope

The vision for the new park is for it to be a place of nature, recreation and to be enjoyed by everyone.

The development of the park has occurred over a number of stages over several years. The rate and extent of each year was subject to securing funding for future stages. 

Project update

Construction of stage nine is underway.

Stage nine comprises of:

  • New playground
  • shade sail to playground
  • New shelter
  • Park seating and picnic tables
  • Pedestrian pathways
  • Landscape gardens
  • Garden arbour 

The staged implementation of the park is based on the Endorsed Landscape Plan[1183KB]

Where to from here

Stage nine works started in June and are expected to be completed by mid-September 2022, weather and site conditions permitting. 

Stage nine marks the completion and final stage of Buderim Village Park landscape concept plan. 

Proudly funded by the Queensland Government's South East Queensland Community stimulus Program in association with Sunshine Coast Council. 

Overview

Council developed a landscape concept plan[4938KB] in 2011. This open space is suitable for families, friends and individuals to enjoy the outdoors.

Some of the key components of the landscape plan include:

  • a village green
  • a large kick-about area
  • internal paths
  • various plantings
  • viewing terraces
  • children's play area
  • BBQ areas
  • multi-functional community events space
  • village square
  • parking for park users.

Background

In early 2010, council purchased the parcel of land to develop the land into a district-level recreation park.

A district-level park provides a greater range of spaces than can normally be put in local parks, including:

  • more diverse play spaces
  • picnic and social spaces
  • kick-about areas
  • community gatherings / events
  • opportunities for art and artistic expression
  • access to natural bushland areas or link to a recreation trail or pathway networks.

Council selected the site as it met the standard requirement of a district recreation park.

Characteristics of the site include:

  • central location in Buderim
  • large, flat, open space - this is currently not provided on Buderim Mountain
  • close proximity to:
    • art and craft centre
    • Buderim War Memorial Hall
    • Buderim Performing Arts
    • Buderim Mountain Primary School
  • the ability to provide the community with a valuable piece of open space.

In 2010, council invited the community to share ideas and help shape the vision for Buderim Village Park. A combination of community engagement activities were undertaken including a questionnaire, Meet us on the Street and stakeholder interviews.

A draft landscape concept was developed based on the community's vision for the park. The draft landscape concept plan was then reviewed by the community.
